Revised sale. Looking to move the truck....bottom line price is $3K. Located in Northern VA...but willing to work with potential buyer for transport or meeting.
The truck is a 1998 K2500 (3/4 ton, 4WD) Suburban with a 7.4L V8 (Vortec 7400) engine, making 290 HP and 410 ft lbs of torque! The tow rating on this package is 10,000 lbs. The truck has 180,000 miles on it.
I've primarily used this truck for snow duty / long trips with 6-9 people / and towing. I've towed a variety of trailers with my race car, and the truck had absolutely no problems with any of them (18' full steel deck open, 18' Featherlite open, 24' enclosed trailer).
As with many vehicles of this "vintage", there are some issues, so let me set those forth right away:
The AC only blows cold during 2-3 months of the summer before needing another recharge.
There is a dent in the passenger side fender, that can probably be easily fixed by a paintless dent repair guy (very small).
The ABS module sometimes acts up when I drive it, but haven't had any significant issues with it.
Additionally, the truck has a small exhaust leak at the header gasket... (common with this motor) and I haven't replaced it yet. It needs attention soon.
The interior has a tear on the driver's seat but otherwise is in pretty good shape and seats 8 adults pretty comfortably with room for luggage in the rear.
The motor does burn oil - expected of these big block motors.
The tires will need replacing sometime soon. Drives fine in the snow (12/9/13) but tread depth is getting low.
On the positive side, the truck is rock solid. These are the current modifications.
The truck has a custom exhaust with Hooker Headers installed and a custom dual 3 inch exhaust pipes with cats and resonators back to a single 2 - 1 muffler exiting at the side for a stock-ish look.
HIDs have been installed and work great.
New battery within the year.
I have installed larger mirrors which can be slid out for towing to increase view angle.
The truck has newer style k2500 wheels off the newer suburbans with the 265/60/16 tires.
Aftermarket Bilstein shocks work great.
It has the upgraded ~44 gallon fuel tank which is absolutely great for long trips and towing.
Front wheels bearings replaced 2 years ago along with a bunch of gaskets on the motor (preventative).
Transmission/front diff/rear diff fluid flushed with fresh synthetic fluid...still red in color.
I have spare rotors, a spare fuel pump, wipers, and misc other things that will go with the truck.
I put the truck in 4WD about once every 3 months just to keep the fluid moving in the front diff. It works great in mud and snow.
The engine pulls hard, have no issues with towing, and is a reliable and very capable winter vehicle. It has never left me stranded on multiple trips up and down the east coast and into the mountains. I honestly wouldn't hesitate driving this car anywhere.
Feel free to contact me via email with any questions/concerns and I can take pictures/videos of the truck for an interested buyer who isn't close enough to come see it.
I also have records of all the work ever done on the truck, from the date of purchase.
